5: The Railroaders
A film about men who have one of the toughest jobs in the world -to maintain the line of the Canadian Pacific Railway during the heaviest snowfalls of winter in the Rockies. In summer the track winds through a majestic mountain panorama, but winter brings the constant threat of blizzards and choking snow.
The train crews, maintenance men, and telegraph operators who live in the isolated part of British Columbia are involved in a constant battle with the elements to keep the line open.

: WHICKER'S WORLD

Alan Whicker visits Ceylon
ISLE OF ASTROLOGERS
He actually made a coffin and got into it-but he didn'die ...
How long will you live ... Whom will you marry ... Will you be rich or poor-or Prime Minister?
Do you believe that everything in life is determined, at birth, by the position of the planets?
Most Ceylonese have no doubts. For them astrology is not just a vague three-line prediction in a newspaper, nor palmistry an amusing diversion; it's a way of life, a creed. Ridiculous? You could change your mind if you watch Whicker' World tonight!
Produced and directed by DAVID C. REA

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
